That exact same question is often put forth by opponents to same-sex marriage here in the USA. Bot ...
As a serious statement, I see no reason, no legal or moral footing, for allowing same sex marriages and prohibiting polygamy. In fact, one could perhaps argue that polygamy is better for a child than same sex marriage, as it provides a child with not only a mother and a father, but several parents. This, one could argue, increases the likely-hood that the child will be financially supported, but also that he can be raised by an actual parent instead of a daycare or the government. What is the compelling argument that is against polygamy and for same sex marriage?
On that note, lets take a look at bestiality. This, I have heard, is actually more popular than you might think, especially in some European communities. So, what moral, ethical, or legal grounds does one have to be in support of same sex marriage, and against a man being in a relationship with, idk, say his dog. One might argue that the dog has no choice in the matter and it is being abused. I read somewhere that there was some study done that showed it was possible to tell weather the animal is accepting and enjoying sexual intercourse with a human. So, if it can be shown that the dog is a willing participant and is enjoying whatever it is, what is the difference? Why can't some whacked out dude marry his dog? What's the difference? Morally, legally, ethically...
A slippery slope here people. Hope everyone enjoys the ride!
